i-movix: New Products and Features on Display at IBC 2010
SprintCam® Vvs HD (Phantom® Powered)
I-MOVIX has just launched SprintCam® Vvs HD, a new ultra-slow-motion system for live HD broadcast production. Featuring the outstanding quality, performance, and usability of SprintCam technology, SprintCam Vvs HD operates at frame rates up to 2,700 fps in 1080i50 or up to 5,800 fps in 720p60 (more than 100 times slower than live action) and provides instant replay at native high-definition resolution and image quality.
SprintCam Vvs HD is optimised for shoulder-mounted portable shooting, providing an unprecedented level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action.
New features include a dual output allowing a camera operator to shoot and record at the same time, segmented memory, ramping of speed within a replay, and integration of both live- and replay-view on the viewfinder.
The SprintCam Vvs HD system comprises: the latest generation of Vision Research high-speed HD camera; an operational control panel providing real broadcast quality color matrix and control of frame rate choice; a slow-motion remote allowing the user to select a video sequence and instantly replay it with an HD-SDI output for live broadcast or storage on any HD-SDI recorder for a later use; and the camera control unit, providing control of the slow-motion instant replay, camera control, and data interface between camera, EVS server, or SDI recorder.

First launched at the 2009 NAB Show and renowned for its unique combination of outstanding image quality, light sensitivity, flexible broadcast integration, and easy, out-of-the-box operation, SprintCam V3 HD's enhanced feature offering now includes: segmented memory; a more compact 2U camera control unit housing; flexible EVS Multicam integration; auto-clip to enable mark-in to mark-out replay from the camera control unit; a digital lens interface for better iris and lens switch control; and added flexibility in the viewfinder interface to accommodate either Sony CRT or Grass Valley.
